is review of the renewable energy task force. >> we will have fried. >> i'm going to turn it over to danielle and give a presentation of the report and we are available for questions after that. >> great. thank you. >> thanks jason. i will return through this fairly quickly, especially the background which you are all familiar with, but if you questions please stop me. awz know san francisco has a long history of climate action and a lot of the work that we have done over the last couple years is guided by our climate change ordinances and our plan to be updated and the sf puc plan and the city set forth aggressive greenhouse gas reduction targets. san francisco emissions come from a variety of sources, but electricity is about 25% of that, so it's one of the largest areas for reduction in the city. san francisco's electricity supply is actually quite clean to the national average. we are 41% renewable if you include hydro electric power and hetch hetchy and pg&e hydro generation, but the goal as set out by mayor newsom is to become 100% renewable and we have a task force comp
system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organization. we're out there rebuilding the water system. we've budget working on power generation in the country. we've been doing sewer for the city. we're looking at a brand-new rebuild of all watt systems in san francisco and we haven't had a home that's been other than mental. >> they staff over 900 people. the puc is in two office locations. >> you know, this is such a great place for a building. if the puc owned that building and we could make that the icon i can sustainable building puc represents, wouldn't be a dramatic idea? >> so, one of the major decisions we made was we wanted to make a statement with this building. we wanted this building to be a lead platinum building which is
're going to reach these goals of 100% renewable energy in that time frame. >> right. >> and certainly that's why i had some concerns around making sure that the values of the cleanpower sf program are ones that are always emphasized because again this is a conversation that has been in this country really since -- for a long time, but certainly in the 70's it took on a greater level of discussion, but then the conversation sort of didn't go anywhere. i think it was jimmy carter was the person person to put solar energy panels on the roof, and then i mentioned a couple of times someone named emory lovins who wrote a book "soft energy path" and took on the issues of fossil fuels and coal and sustainable wind and solar and other sources and just 30 years later we're still -- >> still plugging away. >> still at the beginning of the conversation, so for years i guess san franciscans really haven't had an opt in -- certainly not an opt out choice, and so sometimes we talk too much about opt in i get a little nervous, so anyway i thed to thank you. >> you're welcome. >> before going to public co
mccord and el cerrito and the chair of the sierra club bay chapter energy subcommittee, and the bottom line is that the plan is not yet ready for approval. for one thing the staff needs to fill in the details about just how you're going to reach out to the various communities in the city. supervisor olague that touched on that. and second the plan does not take into account the impacts of the roll out and pricing scenarios being developed by local power which you have contracted with to do this, and the rate fairness board wants to study these before recommending the rates which will affect what you tell people in your surveys and outreach. so we respectively ask that you direct the staff to return to you in december or january with a really detailed outreach program that clarifies the outreach strategy and integrates local build out and jobs, and infrastructure and incomes into pricing and outreach. thank you. >> hi folks. nice to see you all again. i think it's been a number of months since i addressed you briefly. of course i speak on behalf of the advocates and we have been
of energy and life and hope for the world. you have decorated it with peace cranes and light. wishes and dreams, and most importantly your energy. and now, on behalf of the sisters of perpetual indulgence inc, we gather this energy and strength that we may send it to the nuns above and to give it to any and all that needs its strength. to release the energy of hope that this magnificent tree represents i will ask each and every one of you if you please every time you hear me say we say... you will evoke the words of harvey milk by saying as one group you got to give them hope. now please raise your hands towards the tree of hope and we say you got to give them hope. for all lgbtq young people struggling with bullies and intolerance, we say that you got to give them hope for all transgendered people fighting to live with dignity and respect. we say you got to give them hope. for all of those who seek to protect the rights of lgbtq people across the world, we say you got to give them hope. for our sick and elderly in need of a will having word, a sign of hope, we say, you got to give t
those changes for $3,000, $4,000, $5,000. they're oftentimes more energy- efficient. the general consensus is people like that. one other thing that i think is overlooked in terms of value, and i don't know of the survey talks about it, is landscaping and plants. lance camping, plants, and trees are really inexpensive compared to major remodels. i often feel it is something that is heavily overlooked. it as a lot of value. it is a touchy-really, emotional part of a property. oftentimes, we don't have front yards. maybe there should be a tree out front. maybe you should have potted plants lining the stairs going up. perhaps the rearguard in, although you never use it, doesn't matter if you don't get sunshine. plant flowers that do not need son. those are oftentimes good ways to spend money on adding value to your home. >> people that are selling their homes do need to have someone that will absolutely come in. i had a stager come in my house. you need to have another i that will absolutely have you get rid of the little things that you think make it look homey and people love it,
is taking advantage of the sustainable energy source and its usage rate is the second highest in the world. now it's strengthening its industry by teaming up with counterparts from around the globe. >> reporter: steam rises and the air smells faintless of rotten eggs. it is the second largest geothermal power plant in the philippines. the philippines scrapped their nuclear power program in the 1980s in order to pursue renewable energy. gee yoe thermal accounts for 22% of the country's energy. that is the second highest rate in the world. the national economy is on the rise as is the demand for power. to meet that growth, the government has the ambitious goal of increasing total geothermal power output by 75% by the year 2030. there are many challenges to achieving that target. an average size geothermal plant costs $13 million to build. further development also requires new technology for drilling and surveying. but the country is taking steps to bring its goals into reach. manila hosted an international meet williing for countries tha geothermal power. >> it's an exchange of experiences,
generation, the dynamics of financing clean energy and clean energy over the next year so we can take the build out work that is looking promising and realizing for reasons for saving the planet and economics that we must do this local build out. it's not really something that we can debate. we need -- so whatever you do with these positions we would hope that you still end up with two positions and one position could be carefully dedicated to somebody with a lot of expertise on local distributive renewable and generation and efficiency so they can help us dive in with sf puc and make sure we're getting the sf puc hour enterprise to push the envelope on this issue and crucial to the planet, crucial to jobs. you have heard us say that many times and i would concur with freeing up the executive officer. i think we saw when mr. fried was doing good and important work on rank choice voting he had one hand tied behind his back and nice for more flexibility to be there so those are my comments. >> thank you. is there any other public comment? >> hi commissioners. i am paul kingus that
francisco we're meeting a program that meets the needs of the city, not just around clean energy but employment and if we're successful in this program, and especially to the build out of the program that can happen when we have revenue coming in and many jobs can come with the build out and i am excited about that. there are neighbors in san francisco that are greatly impacted by unemployment, greatly impacted by marginalization and racism and inability to access the job market and this can lead the way that we have a strong implementation of programs and services to support communities that are in need of opportunity, so i'm very xietded about how we can move forward with this program, and i will actually cede the mic to the president of the commission. any opening remarks about today's -- >> i can't add more to that articulate overview and i support it and thank you to the commissioners that preceded me and the staff and the now general manager as well for their contributions during that process. thank you mr. chairman. >> thank you. today we will be discussing the custome
energy companies that are creating jobs, it would extend unemployment insurance to 2 million americans who are actively looking for jobs out there. i have to say that ever since i took office, throughout the campaign, and over the last couple of months, my preference would have been to solve all these problems in the context of a larger agreement, a bigger deal, a grand bargain or whatever you want to call it, that solves the deficit problems in a balanced and responsible way that does not just deal with taxes but also spending so that we can put all this behind us and focus on growing our economy. with this congress, that was obviously too much to hope for at this time. [laughter] maybe we can do it in stages. we will solve this problem instead in several steps. in 2011, we started reducing the deficit through $1 trillion in spending cuts which have taken place. the agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest 2% of americans to pay higher taxes for the first time in two decades so that would add additional hundreds of billions of dolla
centers by design consume vast amounts of energy in an incon grewously wasteful manner, interviews and documents show. >> guest: that's right. yeah. and, um, we also point out that the different players in this industry do behave differently. so there are better players, and there are more wasteful players. there is a range. we started talking about the typical data center. the data centers that are using most of the energy out there doing these digital tasks, everything from banks to big department stores, and what i meant by that was that, um, the computers in these data centers typically are actually not doing anything but drawing electricity for the most part. most of the electricity, in fact, a large majority of the electricity that goes into a typical data center is really powering a computer that's waiting for something to do. and these things once they're turned on, because we as consumers insist that this infrastructure always be available and nebraska run out of -- and never run out of capacity, those computers are sitting there just waiting for us to call upon them to do

[laughter] he was once part jew. [laughter] it's impossible to convene the smallest and most transitory of human groups without them improvising at the can on discovery social structure which is to say culture. the culture grows in mysterious ways and has nothing to do with reason. is it reasonable for example that all americans have to say what seems to be the trouble officer? [laughter] where was it written or do they have to say we can't come to the phone right now but if you leave your name and phone number? where in the worlds are these described? the culture extemporizes itself and in response to the communal from necessity to deal with what also extemporizes the mess. he's no less the political views or the modes of organizations can derive from the limited recuring number of human problems and human solutions. the left discovery of global warming, the sinfulness of ma

, and that's for -- that's reflective for the cost difference between providing a renewable energy credit versus firmed and shaped renewable power, so it's the product difference that is embedded in that price difference which goes to commissioner olague's statement that people need to understand the value behind what the price premium is addressing. >> and credit that pg&e can purchase rather than generate the clean power themselves . correct. >> correct. >> and we limit that component to 5% of the overall portfolio. >> thank you. commissioner moran any other? >> no. >> commissioner vietor. >> yes, i had a follow up with that. with the code of kukd and the script and how we talk about the cleanpower sf and the pg&e offering and i don't know if that is sort of -- you talked about that internally i imagine but i think that would be a very important part of the roll out plan and the outreach plan is when that pg&e offering does come online how it will be talked about to the tar communities and the other groups that we will bring in down the road and i wanted to highlight that. i think th

and have enormous problems, but i don't think i've ever met someone who was a totally dark energy that had no humanity or sense of love or affection for anything in their life. that's very rare. but i think that as human beings we tend to compartmentalize, and we have a selective morality based on the situation we're in. and i think that's a very modern thing. it's a problem we have and that we cheat on our taxes and maybe we have a mistress on the side, but in this other area we're totally honest and straightforward and have a moral point of view that is consistent, and we think that's okay. but the moral decisions we make in one part of our life resonate through everything, and i think that's a lot of what we're talking about in this film as well. tavis: the characters are not the same, i want to be clear about that, but i was fascinated to go back through your corpus of work and i think i knew this, but i had forgotten it. you famously turned down the gordon gekko character, michael douglas played that. >> everyone asks me about that. first of all, no one could have done this better tha
've got a huge opportunity around energy. we are producing more energy and america can become an energy exporter. how do we do that in a way that also deals with some of the environmental challenges that we have at the same time? so that's going to be a third thing. but the most immediate thing i've got to do, starting on january 1st, if congress doesn't act before the end of the year, is make sure that taxes are not going up on middle class families. and because it is going to be very hard for the economy to sustain its current growth trends if suddenly we have a huge bite taken out of the average americans' paycheck. >> those are four huge things, you didn't mention after newtown, although i know you're thinking about it, new gun regulations. mayor bloomberg of new york told me couple of weeks ago on this program, that ought to be your number one agenda item. you know how hard this is. do you have the stomach for the political fight for new gun control laws? >> you know, david, i think anybody who was up in newtown, who talked to the parents, who talked to the families, understands th

definitely added some energy. the chargers have early energy, michael spurlock takes the kick off untouched up the middle 99 yards down the sideline into the end zone. chargers take charge 7-0 early. the raiders trailing 10-0 when terrell pryor find bay dhb touchdown of 9 yards and it's 10-7. however charges now leading 17-7 rivers again exploits the secondary. alexander 34 yards. to their credit the silver and black fight back and it's pryor who delivers the energy and run from 4 yards out cutting the deficit to 24-14 as the raiders cut the punt. pryor finds moore. great athleticism that we have not seen from the raiders quarterback position. 24-21 but they cannot recover the on side kick. the raiders finish the season with another loss and a 4-12 season coming to a conclusion. but little ray of hope, this kid terrell pryor looking like he could be a true up and comer and his coach may just agree. >> i think he did some good things. you know obviously i thought there was still some there's still some work that needs to be done there. they obviously provided a little spark. so i think that'
